  • I need a way to make more space on my server

    Hello all,

    here's my setup on my server:

    Windows 2000 server (domain controller) All SP installed.
    Exchange 2000 All SP installed.

    This server was running before i started working at this place.

    All the drives are full, insanelly fragmented.

    I can't run anything (defrag, backup, etc...)

    Is there a way to make free space on the drive ? I have un-installed nearly everything possible...

    If anyone knows a good ways to free space i need your help badly !

    Thanks in advance

    Regards

    Mike

    Delete the backup files that were created when the SPs, Updates and Hotfixes were installed. Empty any TEMP folders on the drive. If the server is used for browsing empty the temp Internet folders. Move the Paging file to a different drive. Lastly, if you are that short of drive space, buy larger HDDs and Ghost the present setup onto them but make the partitions bigger when you do it.

    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2
